Happy Indepelloween!

The city I live in wasn’t able to have it’s July 4th fireworks display due to an incoming storm.  So… they postponed them… until today.  During a festival celebrating Halloween we had costume contests, jack-o-lantern carving, a haunted maze, games, and… you guessed it… fireworks.  Fireworks set to a patriotic soundtrack.  Now let me tell you it was nice, because in July in Phoenix your skin practically melts off just between your car and the building you are heading towards, so sitting outside just for the heck of it in July is one step away from crazy.  But we do it.  Tonight however was nice, almost chilly in fact, and I sincerely enjoyed the fireworks.  I do wonder, however, what a visitor would think with all the people dressed up as everything from ghosts, witches, Sarah Palin (shudder) and the guys from Ghostbusters watching fireworks set off to Lee Greenwoods “Proud to be an American” (or whatever that song is called).  It had to be fairly comical to see.

Nonetheless I wish you all a Happy (or would it be Merry) Indepelloween!!!  May your trick-or-treating be only intermittently disrupted by firework displays.

    “Fairly comical to see” – the dry understatement in that remark makes me laugh every time I think about it. But still, maybe that’s what America is all about: fireworks, pirate costumes, and overly patriotic music, sort of like Oktoberfest combined with a fever dream.

    Happy Inder-hallo-umpus-fire-… Oh, you know what I mean!

    Would it perhaps be a “Spectacular Indepelloween”? Or simply faaaaab-yoo-lus, dahlink?
